About this event

Become certified as an RTBP Athletic Patterns Coach.

This 2-day seminar will focus on the motor patterns of Locomotion, Triple Extension, Change of Direction, and Throwing. These motor patterns are the keystone patterns of athletic expression. When athletes have the ability to express these patterns at the appropriate forces and velocities, their talents are able to reach new levels of potential.

The primary areas focused on in this seminar are running mechanics associated with sprinting, Olympic style lifts, plyometrics, drills involved with deceleration-stopping-and accelerating, and medicine ball throws.

The Athletic Patterns are dominated by the ability to achieve optimal joint positions, elastic capabilities of the soft tissues, coordination, and rate of force development. Coaches will learn the mechanical factors associated with being able to help athletes position themselves to maximize the output of running, jumping, cutting, and throwing by attending this seminar.
